While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.

  • A Good Book to Relax and Enjoy

    It’s been a while since I read this book, but I enjoyed it even more this second time than I did the first. It certainly doesn’t hurt that so many people act as if this book came from the theology section instead of the fiction section. A story that gets people’s feathers up because they’re too busy taking themselves far too seriously: what’s not to love?!

    So when I picked up this book I was not prepared for it. I though this would be a mildly interesting mystery read. Not something that blew my mind after every page. Dan continues to confuse and amaze at every twist and turn. What you think will happen and what does happen are so different I was laughing at myself! I love this book and I recommend it for anyone who wants to have their mind blown after every single chapter. Some say this is offensive to their religion but this is a work of fiction and while there are truths and facts hidden through its mostly about a conspiracy theory and shouldn’t hold any weigh unless you allow it to. I loved it. Definitely the greatest mystery I’ve ever read. Than you Dan.

    Many references were unknown at first glance, therefore, I was unable to fully understand the metaphorical prose Brown enunciated in his works. As far as character development and the addition of various treasured landmarks, this has been an interesting experience. I’ve yet to finish, but I own the novel. The ability to revisit with a fresher perspective at a later date is somewhat refreshing. The hardback is aesthetically pleasing, in comparison with the digital copy — the value remains the same, though prices differ dramatically.

  • Good Murder Mystery But Offensive to Christian Religion

    Really good plot for a murder mystery. However, as an active Catholic who did not know what the book was about, I disagree with the view presented about the Church and her doctrines. I found it offensive that the book was supposedly stating that the Catholic Church's believe of Christ being both man and divine and other aspects mentioned are incorrect.
